Exceptional Student Education Parent Advisory Committee

The Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) is composed of parents, educators, administrators, business representatives, and other interested community members concerned with the education of students with disabilities.

The purpose of the committee is to provide information to parents and input to district staff regarding our ongoing effort to continuously improve services for students with disabilities.

All 2023/2024 meetings will be held via a virtual platform.
A link to join these meetings will be emailed prior to meeting date and will be posted on district and school websites.
